Scene-Setting II

For reference, see here.

On p. 8:

Torrek and his glider pilot, Vilyan, are tattooed with the blue symbol of Sea Bear Lodge (Sea Bear?);

there is not only a Skara River but also a Skara Man's Hat mountain and a Fenga Fjord;

a "kraka" (flying kraken?) nests on the mountain and takes livestock and small children;

Torrek's remembers only the last five years of his life;

Vilyan invokes "Ellevil and the Moon Lady."

We know lunar goddesses and a Moon Woman. Ellevil sounds familiar: Elves, Elrond, eldila and El (also here).

I am out of here.

Kaor, Paul!

The idea of a "sea bear" is another hint that "Memory" is not meant to be our planet Earth, but another world settled by humans. Hmmm, an animal resembling a bear which had "reversed evolved," like whales, from being land animals into sea animals?
